Kershaw has been stealing the limelight as of late due to its amazing custom collaborations with notable knife designers like Rick Hinderer and Ernie Emerson. Personally, I feel that Kershaw really knocked it out of the park with the Thermite. It's got a great set of … [Read more...]
Folding Knives (Folders)
We do many knife reviews on this blog, many of which are of folding knives (usually of the everyday carry/EDC pocket knife variety). The following are all of the folding knife reviews that we've published on this blog so far.
And if there's ever a knife you want a review of that isn't already up here, let us know by commenting on a post or contacting us directly.
The CRKT Drifter has been a mainstay of the CRKT catalog for more than a few years now. I never really thought much of it based on its aesthetics, which is why it's taken so long for me to pick one up. This is a decision I rather regret now. The cutlery industry is always … [Read more...]
The Buck Vantage was a interesting acquisition for me. In a lot of ways, I find it contrarian to my initial expectations of what a Buck knife should represent - after all, most people think of knives like the Buck 110 Folding Hunter or even the Buck 119 as representative of … [Read more...]
The Cold Steel Rajah II is by far the largest folding knife I own. Swinging in with a 6 inch (15.24 cm) recurve blade, it's a pretty fearsome sight. I have been hounded to review some of the big folders from Cold Steel for some time, and whilst many of my preconceptions … [Read more...]
The Kershaw Shuffle is an interesting little tyke recently introduced to the Kershaw lineup. I am not generally a huge fan of folders that attempt to segue into the multitool market, but I found the (albeit flawed) implementation on the Shuffle compelling enough to review. … [Read more...]
When the Spyderco Bug was announced I admittedly scoffed at the idea of a sub 3 inch (total length!) folder. What on earth could anyone do with a 1.27 inch blade? And yet, this tiny knife kept popping up in other people's pocket dumps and EDC showcases... So here I am - … [Read more...]
The many variants of the CRKT M16 have been a reference model for CRKT for quite some time now. I usually tend to avoid uber-tactical options when it comes to folders, with the exception of the CRKT Hissatsu (which I love), but I felt it was almost obligatory to pick up what … [Read more...]
The Kershaw Blur is probably the most popular knife that I own. It seems everyone I've spoken to either currently owns one, or has at least handled the Blur in the past, and when you see how much Kershaw brings to the table taking into account this knife's affordable entry … [Read more...]
The Ontario RAT-1 is probably the most famous "budget" folder that consistently gets recommended on the forums. I've always shied away from purchasing it in the past due to my (somewhat extreme) disdain for its aesthetics, but in January this year, I bit the bullet, deciding … [Read more...]
The Kershaw Leek has always been a mainstay of recommended everyday carry knives. It's available at an extremely affordable price point (remember, it's actually USA-made), has excellent fit and finish, as well as above average cutting performance. All this places the Kershaw … [Read more...]
